Regents to consider legacy tuition plan

April 8, 2009


A previously discussed plan to allow out-of-state legacy students to receive a discounted tuition rate at Kansas University is going before the Kansas Board of Regents next week.

The “Jayhawk Generations” plan would give partial tuition waivers to out-of-state students who meet academic requirements and have a parent or grandparent who graduated from KU.

Students with a 3.25 or higher GPA in high school and an ACT score of 26 to 29 (or SAT equivalent) would receive a 12 percent discount on the out-of-state rate, and a score of 30 or above would allow for a 20 percent discount.

The tuition breaks would not reduce tuition below the actual cost of providing their education, so they would continue to help fund in-state students, according to a release from the school.

The Board of Regents is scheduled to consider approving the proposal during its meeting next week.

Lame. After they rejected out veteran's tuition plan without even really looking at it it really upsets me that they're giving this full consideration.
